Subject PLEASE READ: 2.3 branch created, feature freeze in effect
Date Tue, 08 Jan 2008 02:56:15 GMT
Hi Team,

thanks everyone for committing the outstanding issues on time!
As announced I created a Lucene 2.3 branch today from trunk revision
r609842 here:

As of now a feature freeze on this branch is in effect. In detail this
means to the committers:

- No new features may be committed to the branch.
- Documentation patches, build patches and serious bug fixes may be
committed to the branch. However, you should submit *all* patches you
want to commit to Jira first to give others the chance to review and
possibly vote against the patch. Keep in mind that it is our main
intention to keep the branch as stable as possible.
- All patches that are intended for the branch should first be committed
to trunk and then merged into the branch.
- Normal trunk development may continue as usual. However, if you plan
to commit a big change to the trunk while the branch feature freeze is
in effect, think twice: can't the addition wait a couple more days?
Merges of bug fixes into the branch may become more difficult.
- *Only* Jira issues with Fix version "2.3" and priority "Blocker" will
 delay a release candidate build. If on January 17th none of those issue
are in Jira I will build a release candidate and call a release vote on

We should make use of this feature freeze and spend the next 10 days for
extensive testing and javadoc improvements. We should also try to clean
up old issues in JIRA. I opened LUCENE-1104 - LUCENE-1111 to track this.

Let's keep up the great work!

- Michael
